FDA Recalls St. Jude Medical Defibrillation Wires
People with heart rhythym problems often have defibrillators surgically implanted. A defibrillator is a device that delivers an electric shock to the heart muscle for the purpose of restoring regular heart rhythm. In November 2011, the United States Food & Drug Administration issued a recall of St. Jude Medical Riatta and Riatta ST Silicone Endocardial Defibrillation Leads, which are the wires that connect the defibrillator to the cardiac tissue. The FDA issued the recall because a defect in the wires may cause the defibrillator to deliver an unnecessary and painful shock to the heart, or cause the defibrillator not to deliver a needed shock to restore regular hearth rhythm. This defect can cause serious health problems, including death. The defective wires would likely have been implanted between 2001 and 2010. It is estimated that approximately 76,000 people in the United States have had these defective wires implanted.
If you have had St. Jude Medical Riatta and Riatta ST Silicone Endocardial Defibrillation Leads implanted and have experienced any problems, contact your physician immediately.
